Very interesting creature. If you get a name let me know, please. Thx I can't pin it down, for one thing you don't get a very good look at the dorsal side, but It could be a type of scale worm.

I think you are spot on, Sundew. My first thought was a sea mouse (Aphrodita aculeata) but they are indeed usually more 'furry/bristly', so possibly a scale worm (Polynoidae...?). Those are not all that well-recorded/imaged and it could even be a new species. (This from someone who used to run a marine re... [More]
